Shelley Rae Johnson, 63, of Fort Wayne, passed away peacefully in her home on Thursday Feb 6th. Shelley was born in Tampa, FL and resided in Fort Wayne for 30 years. Shelley enjoyed spending time with her pets, tending her flower garden and bird-watching. She cherished evenings spent grilling out on her back patio with her family. Shelley was blessed to work for Anthony Wayne Services Foundation and Benchmark Human Services in the accounting department. She believed in the mission and found in these companies a compassionate management team and unbelieveably loyal, caring, and loving co-workers that supported her through her illness. Shelley is survived by her husband of 22 years, David Willoughby; daughter Kacy Johnson of Lexington, KY; son Rob Johnson of Fort Wayne; sisters Suzanne Alvarez, Diane Freiberger, Mary Ellen Junttilla and Jane Kitos; sisters in-law, Trudy MacLaverty and Christina Hockema; mother in-law, Shirley Willoughby, and her Goldendoodle puppy, Sophie. She was preceded in death by her parents, Tom and Ellen Branigan; brother Jack Branigan; sister Carol Branigan; sister in-law Kathy Willoughby; father in-law Ralph Willoughby; as well as her beloved pets, Himalayan cat Cocoa and English Bulldog Jellie. Shelley's wishes were to be cremated and a spring memorial gathering is forthcoming. Preferred memorials may be made to Cancer Services of Northeast Indiana or Camp Red Cedar. Arrangements entrusted to FairHaven Funeral Home and Cremation Services.
